LibreOffice not starting

#1

Post by gbhollr » Sat May 18, 2019 7:16 am

I tried to start LibreOffice on my MX Linux but all I get is just a quick blip of the splash screen but nothing else.
I even reinstalled the program but it did nothing to help.

Try starting it using the terminal and see what errors pop up.

What version are you using, on what are you using it? Perhaps you can place details here on your environment use: MX Tools>> Quick System Info.

I personally use the appimage with zero difficulties.... see:

Have you preserved an old home folder by any chance.

A quick search for libtreoffice and signal 11 suggests removing the ~/.config/libreoffice folder may help, although you would lose any older libreoffice config.doing so.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

I tried that, it didn't work.

As for the home folder, I don't think so.
Although what if I did?
